Connections land luxury seating at professional sporting events

Marcia Gelbart of The Philadelphia Inquirer used city records to show that more than 1,000 seats in luxury suites at professional baseball and football games went "mostly to people with clout." Among the top recipients were members of the city council, aides to Mayor John Street and members of his family. Street has distributed another 72 tickets to non-profit groups and police officers.
